Sounds like a good plan to me, a bit like doing the Chelsea chop on only a few stems of a plant
Can anyone tell me why when I cut back my black lace elderberry the branches from where I trimmed withered and died? Is it too late now at the end of May in Chicago to trim it back the dead branches? I'm afraid of loosing the whole bush.
You'll need to tell us a bit more about your elderberry bush - is it in sun or shade? Does it get much water or is the soil naturally dry? What are the garden temperatures? When did you cut it back and how far?
